7 Iconic Knitwear Moments In Film


Back to Trends


Oversized Fair Isle jumpers, cropped cable knits and bold colours define the knitwear of Autumn Winter 2018. To get you in the mood for sweater weather, we look back at some of the greatest knitwear moments in film that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy…

1. The Holiday (2006)

When Cameron Diaz swapped her glam LA home for a cosy cottage in Surrey in The Holiday she brought all her best jumpers, cardigans and scarves for the occasion. They were most likely all 100% cashmere…


2. Bonnie and Clyde (1967)

If Faye Dunaway’s combination of a knitted tee, beret and neck scarf isn’t the epitome of iconic then we don’t know what is.


3. Factory Girl (2006)

Sienna Miller’s entire wardrobe as Edie Sedgwick in Factory Girl is enviable – including a collection of fine-knitted tops ranging from striped roll necks to metallic bell sleeves.


4. When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Harry and Sally are still to this day one of the most popular on-screen couples ever. The matching jumpers are definitely a plus.


5. Paris, Texas (1984)

If you’re into colour coordination, you’ll love this one. Next time you pick your knit, consider your surroundings so you can match them perfectly as inspired by Paris,Texas.


6. Two Weeks in September (1967)

Cord, checks and colour-pop knitwear: Brigitte Bardot’s outfit in the London-based Two Weeks in September could just well be a part of our Autumn Winter 2018 campaign.


7. Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)

Yes we all know the real iconic knit in the movie is Mark Darcy’s Christmas jumper, but Bridget Jones also wore tonnes of great scarves, jumpers and cardigans in the film.
